The event, chaired by Robin Bresky, is an annual program of Temple Beth El that reminds the community about how the rule of law brought order to the world after World War II and the Holocaust.

Rosenbaum, the keynote speaker, received the Jay and Marilyn Weinberg Rule of Law Award, named for the philanthropic couple who sponsors the event each year.   For 38 years, Rosenbaum investigated and prosecuted numerous human rights violators around the globe.   He won more cases against Nazi criminals than the governments of the rest of the world’s nations combined.

Judge Burton received the Civility Award.  A circuit judge since 2005, he has always scored among the highest in the Palm Beach County Bar’s judicial surveys.  Within six months of being appointed to the county bench in 2000, he served as chair of the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board during the presidential election that year.

“With antisemitism on the rise around the globe, this year’s luncheon was as relevant as it has ever been,” said Bresky, an appellate attorney who chairs the event each year.  “We can learn a lot from the past and apply it to situations we are facing in the world today.”

Past speakers at the Lawyers Luncheon include Ben Ferencz, Alan Dershowitz, and former U.S. Senator Christopher Dodd.
